Many men experience a condition
called gynecomastia, where fatty tissue and breast
tissue cause enlargement of the breasts. The condition usually
starts in men in adolescence and does not respond to diet
and exercise. The treatment for gynecomastia is probably
the most common operation sought by men. In cases where
the enlargement is due to excess fatty tissue, liposuction can usually treat the condition. If the cause is excess
breast tissue, a subcutaneous mastectomy may
be the best option for removal. In this operation, the breast
tissue is actually cut out. After treatment, men can then
develop the pectoral muscles without the camouflaging effect
of the enlarged breasts. If your gynecomastia is associated
with an abdominal pouch and love handles, it may be best to treat all three areas at the same time.
By doing so you have a better overall result, have only
one operation, one recovery period, and it is more economical.
The treatment often entails only liposuction using a very small incision underneath the breast. In some
cases, excisional surgery whereby breast tissue is actually
cut out may be necessary.
Patients need to wear a binder for 1-2 weeks. Return
to work may be as quick as the following day, but most patients
take a few days. Massage and ultrasound treatment given
post-operatively is an integral part of our program.
